Hi. I knew Shih Tzu's could be stubborn but ... We have a 9 year old male, and most of his life he's been out and about when he's done his business. We now need him to go in the garden, rather than walking him round the block. We've tried pretty much everything ... waiting for him to go, crating him for half an hour and letting him back out again, putting him on a lead round the garden, and when he HAS gone, rewarding him. However, he doesn't seem to be learning at all, and is retaining his poo/wee for more than a day. Right now it's 28 hours. Taking him out of the garden and round the block will work, I know. He'll pee straight away. But that means he wins. And we want him to go in the garden. It's not that he can't go ... he won't go. Tell me we're not alone. Any encouragement would be gratefully received. Thanks.
